Most practioners of inverse problems use least squares or maximum likelihood (MLE) to estimate parameters with the assumption that the errors are normally distributed. When there are errors both in the measured responses and in the independent variables, or in the model itself, more information is needed and these approaches may not lead to the best estimates. A review of the error-in-variables (EIV) models shows that other approaches are necessary and in some cases Bayesian inference is to be preferred.
